The Tennessee Volunteers will be a No. 3 seed in this year’s NCAA Tournament. They will play in Dallas on Thursday. Tennessee had a shot to potentially move up to a two-seed with a win over Kentucky today, but they fell short at the end.
Speaking of Kentucky, they’re the 5th seed in Tennessee’s region.
Wright State is 25-9, the winner of the Horizon League. They beat Cleveland State to punch their ticket to the big dance on Tuesday. Looking ahead, Tennessee has winnable games against (potentially) Miami and Cincinnati in the later rounds.
But first things first, they have to beat Wright State in Dallas.

This will be Tennessee head coach Rick Barnes’ 23rd appearance in the NCAA Tournament. It will be the first appearance for every player on Tennessee’s current roster, however. This is Tennessee’s 21st appearance in the big dance and their first since 2014.
Here’s how the South Region shaped up.
9. Kansas State
14. Wright State
15. Georgia State
